Clinical Research

Are you a researcher wishing to collaborate with Meharry on a scientific question? Are you a member of the general public interested in clinical trials, having lost a family member to breast cancer? ‘Clinical research’ requires both the concerned citizen and the scientific investigator working together. We also conduct ‘translational research’—translating research from the lab to drugs/treatments for the public at large.

To the general public, Meharry says consider registering as a research volunteer in the Participant and Clinical Interactions Resource office. You may also want to register at, where you can learn about studies taking place at other institutions as well.

To researchers, particularly Meharry’s investigators, the College says welcome. Explore the PCIR and core facilities (as well as services available to you through the Grants Management Office and Office for Grants Development). Meharry’s Board of Trustees is committed to growing the services available to the College’s researchers. As this growth takes place, what Meharry lacks in size it more than makes up for in personal attention. Your contribution to the research community at Meharry is valued.
